You definitely have your download and upload speeds reversed, download is always faster than upload, unless you have a T1 line where they will be equal. To answer your question though, no going wireless will not speed up one computer over the other. When possible, always use wired connections.

Your internet connection is only about about 15% of your wireless card bandwidth ,and only about 8% of your wired bandwidth. Making one wireless will not speed up the wired connection. For reliability I always use wired connections when possible.
